I am so sorry to hear about Andy’s passing. What a shock! I last saw Andy in Chewalla when Gina and I took Mother there while I was staying with her in Bolivar. We had a great visit. My memories of Andy are mainly all the times we spent there at the farm. Riding the tractor, swimming in the creek and playing non stop! He was a cool cousin, and so fun growing up. I feel so sad for your loss. He is in Heaven now, waiting ... I pray that you will all feel the comfort of the Lord during this difficult time 🙏.

Family & Friends of Andy,

I am very sorry for your loss. I have worked with Andy over the past several years scheduling deliveries, we have had many conversations about his love for his family and his grandson. Recently he told me he was going to have a granddaughter and he was very excited. Andy was one of a kind, always nice and very funny. I will miss my conversations with him.

My heart & prayers are with you during this difficult time.
